New DoD Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMCC): Everything you need to know.
Though contracting opportunities for small businesses are abundant, cybersecurity poses a threat to small businesses in the defense industrial base and our national security. To help mitigate cybersecurity threats, the Department of Defense (DoD) will soon require all businesses bidding on contracts and performing on current contracts to certify that they meet at least a basic level of cybersecurity standards when responding to solicitations.
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a five-level certification process developed by the DoD to help ensure contractors have a system for protecting sensitive data and information.
- Level 1: Demonstrate basic cyber hygiene
- Level 2: Demonstrate intermediate cyber hygiene
- Level 3: Demonstrate good cyber hygiene
- Level 4: Proactive
- Level 5: Advanced/progressive
Project Spectrum, an initiative of the DoD Office of Small Business Programs to strengthen the cybersecurity of small and medium-sized businesses, and the Florida Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), will host a no-cost webinar to help small business owners understand the CMMC Level 1 certification.
